“Divergent opinions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

For dinner, I had the chicken parm, and my wife had the grilled mahi-mahi. She thought her fish was quite good, and the price was very reasonable. My dinner was not great. The chicken was a fried piece cut into strips on a bed on pasta with a red sauce. The pasta was mushy, and the red sauce was under seasoned. The drinks were good, and the price was reasonable. Good value compared to the other restaurant we visited.

“Good selection and prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

I got a sandwich to take away, and it was very good, and at a good price! The mac/potato salad is yummy. I had a shrimp and crab wrap on an herb tortilla. The flavor combo was good, and the shrimp/crab salad inside of the wrap wasn't too juicy. A great find!

“Good food close by the volcano”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We had lunch at this cafe. Good food, nice people, close to National Park. Nothing extra special but good price and food. Very few other places to eat around the park so take advantage of this cafe to fuel up.

“Home Cooking Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I enjoyed my country breakfast. I will say 2 people who sat with us told me their breakfast was cold. But my review is a good one. The service was good, food good, and a great atmosphere. Just get there before the buses arrive!!!

“Good value for the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We ate dinner here twice in December. This is an ordinary-food place done well. Nothing fancy, good food, friendly waitresses. Prices were average for Hawaii. One night there was a singer--very nice. Not a lot of choices in Volcano, but this one is okay in our opinion.
